HOUSTON, TX - Astros fans know Carlos Correa has plenty of power when it comes to home runs, but on Saturday, the shortstop used his muscle to help deliver 500 beds to kids in need.  Correa's "Restless for the Cause" program teamed up with Mattress Firm, Simmons Bedding Company and Houston Children's Charity to distribute the mattresses, bed frames, sheet sets and pillows.

"Its something I identified myself with, growing up as a kid in Puerto Rico," Correa said. "Now, where I am, I always wanted to do these things. To become a big league player and create an impact on society is really important for me."

Correa has a goal of ultimately donating 2,000 beds to Houston Children's Charity.  For information on donating, visit
